"five hundred seventy five million dollars" Discussed on Michigan Policast
"Testing five hundred. Seventy five million dollars that is available to us that we simply need to get appropriate and i. I'm eager to work with the legislature to get this done legislative. Democrats echo that message. Is the house democratic leader. Donald kinski unveiled a counterproposal to immediately utilize all of that available. Federal money and our hardworking michigan. Taxpayer dollars are had taken up residence in washington. Dc instead of doing the work we need done here in the state of michigan michiganders' across the state. Need those dollars here now. Lead republicans right now as we saw last week are holding this money up there holding it hostage with threats of different types of partisan political actions in their fight with the governor when michiganders' deserve action. Right now this battle is ridiculous. You've got the republicans claiming that the the governor has emasculated the republicans in the legislature. Which i don't even want to go there. But they're using this federal money which is desperately needed at the state and local level. It's needed in our schools. As leverage to get more power over the governor and to give more control over the handling of the pandemic to the to the legislature. It is a dangerous game of bluff poker that they're playing right now and the people of the state of michigan are stuck right in the middle of the whole thing. And it's just. It's it's credibly irresponsible. The legislative republicans. These people are not serious people. They're out there playing a role on stage for their crazy. Mishaan mchugh trump base and. That's the only way to explain this first of all. If they were serious about the economy they would not hold billions of dollars from it. Which is what they're doing second. They must know that governor whitmer is going to give up powers of the executive. Would they've been fighting over that. Since she was elected they started trying to restrict her office before she even was inaugurated and they have been trying ever since with bottles. And everything else so. She's not going to do that so they must know that. And even though they're saying things like we you know we've been emasculated we've been neutered trying to signal something with that or if they're just you know pretending like i don't know why they're using that language that's just weird but even when they're talking about that they're stupid about it. I mean. we looked constantly talking about gretchen. Whitmer numbers and how she's doing with favorability. Mike shuki had an op. Ed where he said that a recent detroit chamber poll found that forty six percent of respondents blame whitman's restrictions for the state's economic downturn. Now i'll tell you what. I don't know why that number isn't higher. It's clear that the pandemic and the pandemic restrictions have really hurt the economy. But that same study that he cited finds that the majority of michiganders continued of you covert as a public health threat. Sixty three percent of respondents. Give her favorable marks on this. That includes one third of republican voters by the way forty. Six percent say that the legislative leaders are not doing enough forty over forty one percent. Say they should work and compromise with governor whitmer end over sixty eight percent want the state legislature to pass a requirement that everyone has to wear a mask indoors in public spaces. So if you have access to that data you're using it for your argument on opening up the state. You must know that the majority of people are on governor whitmer side here and you mentioned earlier. President biden is well has numbers in the sixty based on his response is overwhelmingly popular right. Now he's twenty points above donald trump's highpoint is president approval rating and he's just getting warmed up so ultimately the legislative republicans. Just not serious. They're not genuine on their arguments. Because you you can tell by. The weather withholding billions of dollars. They're upset that they can't quote unquote come to the table. They have quadrant meetings. All the time mike schuck he just doesn't like zoom and they don't even. They're not even willing to wear masks. How can you take them seriously. In pandemic response negotiations if as individuals. They won't wear masks. It is it is unbelievable that these people are in a place where we have to listen to them to show how serious they are as you mentioned one of the amendments that they put into their version of allocating the federal money which by the way their bill allocates about eight hundred sixty eight million dollars in federal funds. There's three point six billion dollars in the democratic bill. And it's basically it's all federal money as well but one of the things they put in. There was a requirement that anyone receiving a vaccine administered using funds from the supplemental to be provided with information or informed if in what manner the development of the scene utilized aborted fetal tissue or human embryonic stem cell. Derivation lines what the hell is that got to do with public health and in the pandemic. That's that's simply pandering to their base for absolutely no good reason but the game they're playing right now is the governor has been told you can't spend any of this money unless you also sign legislation that gives basically take all of your power. The department of public health power to deal with the pandemic turns it over to the local governments or to the legislature. And they know she's not gonna sign that it's a poison pill she's not only will she not sign it. They're not going to win this game. We just we just talked about those numbers. They cannot win a game when it comes to public perception. They just can't the other ones withholding the money. They're the ones who are just summarily rejecting appointments which they try to build messaging around and say well this is just because we want her to work with us but that nobody cares about that. Nobody cares about that at all and and pull that. I cited earlier over. Forty one percent work with government. Whitmer compromise with governor whitman over sixty percent. Pass requirement for masks. What are these republicans. Doing what are the reasons why the governor should remain in charges. She can act much more quickly. She's much can be much more nimble just given the way things happen an executive order or order from the department of health and human services can come out very quickly and be implemented very quickly whereas anything that has to go through the legislature is gonna take a minimum of two three weeks and the numbers are changing constantly and the situation changing constantly. Plus our knowledge of how to deal with this pandemic changes constantly the legislature. Just because of the way the institution operates is not equipped handle with a sort of an emergency. And that's why we have emergency powers act in the first place. Just take a look at the situation. With with the high school sports. The legislature had its panties in a wad over the fact that the governor shutdown temporarily winter indoor contact sports. Which makes a whole lot of sense when you think about it. The michigan state university basketball team. They've got fifteen guys on that team. Thirteen of them have already come down with the virus at some point in the season their head coach their assistant head coach and a couple of other support personnel of come down with the virus to and that's a much more controlled situation than high school sports. The danger for most high schools athletes is not to themselves. But for the fact that they can become carriers and take it home and infect mom and dad and grandma and grandpa and that is that's the big unknown but the fact also remains the state is willing to take the gamble but it was able to do so very quickly the legislatures complaining the next day elizabeth her tell the new head of.

Seamus astonished. The co founder and chief executive of the house party video app spoke at the festival about how house party is averting a loneliness epidemic. We felt that there was a solution that was needed out there. Particularly for the younger demographic, who's feeling. I mean I, I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that they're on the precipice of a loneliness epidemic. And they're spending so much time on their devices in their rooms, and what we're trying to in is humanity. Back into connecting and. We all sort of opted into a synchronous communication. We started. Texting each other back and forth. We started liking in a news feed or. Re tweeting or responding in these Acer internist manners. And sure it's like officiant, but it doesn't fill your tank in the same way that like seeing somebody face to face does. And this is a response to that feeling and just trying to get people connected again in order to access such video chat apps. One certainly needs internet, a challenge for rural America, as of late land-o-lakes president and CEO. Beth Ford says that farmers are struggling to access basic resources because of their limited access to broadband problem that we're going to have is this technology, these tools that have been developed. They cannot be leveraged broadly. Probably about thirty percent of farmers. Don't have broadband access. You know, they're two hundred counties in America, that don't have broadband access there in rural America, and this is a real issue so beyond the tools. We touch have harvest bakers in America. We touched twenty five percent of the farmers with our federative model. The biggest concern I have is their ability to. Make an best moment in their communities. They are they are not able to do that. We're looking at all different options because you know what there's not going to be one solution. Switching gears and to mix it up a quick check in on the future of food for all the talk of dining apps, and food delivery, much of which disgust at the festival, the future of how we look at food continues to evolve.

And now David Chang, and there's a lot of content. And I know I'm a net flicks baby. So I'm like, obviously promoting shows that are there. But like there's so. Much awesome.

Amazon announces HQ2 in a split decision (The 3:59, Ep. 489)
"Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm alfred. I'm Ben talks Rueben. If you haven't heard Amazon announced today that they are bringing HQ to to Long Island city in Queens, New York and crystal city, Arlington Virginia are Amazon. Reporter Ben FOX who've been has all the details on it. This is so shocking. I can't believe it. I think I okay. First of all the news at already been leaked a lot last week for multiple sources, the other issue that I'm sure a lot of people will want to quibble about is they're calling it three different North America headquarters. Oh, yes. Like, what is the headquarters? Any third one would be Nashville, Tennessee. No, so Washington like. Washington. Like, obviously Seattle the first one. There's also Nashville Tennessee is going to get five thousand people the other to the ones that were announced today are gonna get twenty five thousand employees each but Seattle is still the biggest with forty five thousand Amazon state. What was so appealing about Long Island city or crystal city, and there I'm sure they did I I was just like planting through their statements where they said a bunch of like positive stuff about this. The these locations it's pretty obvious why they wanted to go to both of these places. These two major centers of power in the east coast, the the DC area, obviously, Amazon has been trying to push a lot more into getting more government contracts. More defense contracts in New York. There's obviously a lot going on with media and entertainment in New York and Amazon being in Seattle as their primary headquarters as oppose to being in the valley means that they are you know, a flight away from that center of power. So. Plunking down twenty five thousand high paying employees in those two major areas. It's going to be pretty significant for the company with our ni financial incentives into this. Yes, very much. So I know that Andrew Cuomo governor Cuomo at one point seven changes name to Amazon Cuomo aches. Okay. First of all like don't expect politicians to act any differently than they normally would. Because if you're expecting them to not shell themselves for twenty five thousand jobs or fifty thousand jobs, which was the initial offer. Then, you know, you're being ridiculous. They would I'm sure Nashville is even very very excited about five thousand jobs. The the problem is in the joke of it is is that this was supposed to be an equal like a co equal to Seattle. And instead it's being separated by multiple states. So let calling two different headquarters twenty five thousand each it's different than what was initially promised. And so a lot of people, and it's also exactly where a lot of people would have expected them to locate. Anyway, so so what were the financial incentives are up a little bit? So New York is offering one point five billion dollars in incentives Virginia's offering five hundred seventy five million dollars incentives. Nashville got away easy with only one hundred million in. Puntive, and that's four creating high paying jobs. I think in the paperwork or the in the terms for an Amazon New York, it was a forty eight thousand dollars for every job that they bring that pays more than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars right temporarily. Obviously, you know, at some point they are not going to get that and sons, and there was another part that mentioned, you know, in lieu of paying taxes, it would be developing infrastructure within Long Island city in queens. Not sure if I'm big fan of that deal. I don't know how many schools Amazon is making or how much it's helping with the subway or police in New York, but I feel like that is something that, you know community. Organizers have always been annoyed about in terms of steel. I know in Newark, they had basically given them the largest possible tax break had they gone with newer, actually, Maryland gave them the biggest with point five billion work offered the second highest publicly known one with seven billion the. Yeah. Like, there's there are a lot of questions that people. Always ask as far as like, this is one of the wealthiest companies in the world. It's one of the biggest companies in the world. Why are we giving them? I wish I could get paid one point five billion dollars to move to New York to do exactly what you were planning on doing in the first place. So you know, that's all the time. We have for today show if you liked what you heard check us out on CNN. I'm out for dang. I'm Ben FOX riven extra listening.
